There are quite a few new books coming out in 2009 that I'm very excited about reading. I'm especially looking forward to Drood by Dan Simmons because I really enjoyed his last book. I decided to start a thread for 2009 releases so that we'll all know what is coming. ;-)

Drood: A Novel :: Dan Simmons
ISBN-13: 9780316007023 - ISBN-10: 0316007021

I'm dying to read this one too - Roanoke :: Margaret Lawrence
ISBN-13: 9780385342377 - ISBN-10: 0385342373


Which 2009 releases are you dying to read?

Valli - You are an EVIL person!  I have 852 million OLD books in my TBR pile and wishlist.  Now you're tempting me with more?!?!?!  I have decided not to click on a one of your links!  LOL!  But thank you for posting them! 

One more to add, and I'm sorry I don't have time to go searching for the information, but I believe Bernard Cornwell is supposed to bless us with a new Uhtred installment in 2009.  Now that's one book I WILL read when it comes out! 

ETA - Okay, so I lied.  I went through your links and threw my name in the wish list hat for many of them.  (I am so pathetic!)
